Too hyped about it and it's finals week for me...
And I don't even own a 3DS!
I'm excited that they finally made a new story, reinstated the old support system, and apparently this did very well over in Rising Sun country, so more hype for me.
Only complaint I have is that the attack animations are not as flashy as previous games; I miss those ridiculous crit animations from the GBA era.
Oh, and Paris's existence...wut.
